Spectrum Street Art Festival

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:08 pm on 16 February 2015

The Spectrum Street Art Festival organiser, George Shaw, is outraged Canterbury Museum ignored his request to withdraw a controversial T-shirt from its T-Shirts Unfolding exhibition, which is part of the event. The T-shirt features a semi-naked nun masturbating on one side and offensive wording about Jesus on the other side. More than 3000 people have signed an online petition against the exhibition and Family First NZ is laying a complaint with police. Simon speaks with George Shaw from Oi YOU!, YMCA Christchurch chief executive officer Josie Ogden Schroeder and Anthony Wright from Canterbury Museum.
